That God takes something so beautiful and delicate as this okra flower and turns it into something we can eat just blows my mind! That I can plant tiny seeds the size of a BB and later feed my family for months from it is stunning.
This one simple thing has transformed the way I look at wasps. I used to hate them, darn near had a panic attack every time I saw one.
But now I know the beauty that lives within those little pollinators. Now I love them. Bring on the wasps!
They - along with all their little friends the bees, dragonflies and butterflies - help make this flower into something fabulous and tasty. Thank you, you wonderful plants and you little pollinators, and thank you, God. What a truly wonderful world.
